The magical night at JITEC Mangga Dua Square
Warning: It’s long, no pictures, no videos.
I don’t know where or how to start describing how it feels being chanted by Xia’s spell. Jakarta concert was such a magical night…but Xia’s spell on me has started since the MV was released. Let me start from that moment when magic started before talking about Jakarta concert.
Tarantallegra MV teaser was a shock for me. Having been loving Junsu since 2006, I have witnessed his transformation from an idol to a musical actor and true artist. But Tarantallegra was beyond my imagination that Junsu would dare to do. Shocked, scared, but full of hope and expectation were what I have felt that time. Knowing Junsu’s needs for perfection, his hardworking and work ethics, I had a feeling that it would become something big. And yes, it was, and still is, isn’t it? Tarantallegra marks and forms a new facet of K-pop. For myself, it shows different side of my bias whom I’ve loved for 6 years. It enriches my dictionary of who Kim Junsu is.

The stage for South Korean singer Xia Junsu at JITEC Mangga Dua on Saturday night was far from grand, but that did not stop the fans from being amazed by his live performance.
After more than a one-and-a-half hour delay, the concert finally started at 8:40 p.m. with Xia appearing in a blue outfit, the same color as his hair, which he said was own special preparation after learning that Indonesia was an archipelagic country.
He started the concert with ‘Breath’, one of the songs from his first solo album, Tarantallegra, launched in May, and followed up with ‘No Gain’.
